Madonna is, without a doubt, one of the most influential personalities in the history of pop music and fashion.
She paved the way for feministic representation in the entertainment industry, normalized having a gap between the two front teeth, and became the origin for the first use of the term “icon” in celebrity culture.
On top of all that, Madonna also holds a Guinness World Record for being the best-selling female artist ever in music history.
With all those achievements in mind, people have a certain level of expectation when it comes to Madonna’s financial status. Surely, she must be insanely rich with all those sponsors and sales. But how much exactly is Madonna’s net worth? Is she already a billionaire?
Well, let’s find out!
Where Does Madonna Get All Her Money?
As the highest-selling singer in the world, Madonna has earned millions of dollars from her album sales alone. However, the Queen of Pop can attribute most of her fortune to her sold-out concerts.
According to Forbes, Madonna has amassed over $1.2billion from all of her tours combined. Here’s a comprehensive break-down of that number:
- The Virgin Tour – $5,000,000
- Who’s That Girl World Tour – $25,000,000
- Blond Ambition World Tour – $62,700,000
- The Girlie Show World Tour – $70,000,000
- Drowned World Tour – $75,000,000
- Re-Invention Tour – $124,000,000
- Confessions Tour – $194,000,000
- Sticky and Sweet Tour – $411,000,000
- MDNA Tour – $305,000,000
- Rebel Heart Tour – $169,000,000
- Madame X World Tour – $51,000,000
Aside from writing and performing songs, Madonna is also an actress. Her role in the movie Evita, for which she won a Golden Globes award, earned her a whopping $1million salary. However, her highest film-salary was $2.5million for featuring in the movie Body of Evidence.
The diva queen’s hustles do not stop there, as she also engages in a few business ventures. For instance, she recently launched her own cosmetic line called MDNA Skin.
A few years ago, she earned $60million as an advance after co-founding an entertainment company called Maverick. Madonna is also entitled to 20% of the royalties from any of the songs released through that company.
Shortly after, Madonna released her first-ever book entitled Sex under that same company. And in just a few days, Madonna walks away with $75million sales made.
What is Madonna’s Net Worth?
While Madonna has easily made a few billion dollars from her singing career alone, she does have a very luxurious lifestyle and tends to spend thousands if not millions of dollars on certain things.
In fact, she bought a $1.4million car just not too long ago. Plus, Madonna does not take all her tour sales home with her. There are other employees, staff, and expenses to pay.
So, with all those factors in mind, Madonna’s estimated current net worth is around $850million. Just a few million dollars more and she’ll be the first female artist to become a billionaire!
